The School of Practical Art was established in 1912 by Roy Atherton Davidson because of the great need of a school where boys and girls could receive vocational training in practical art. The School is thus a pioneer in this line of work, and its sixteen years of experience in teaching only practical art has made its courses of real worth and commercial value. The School gives fundamental and practical instruction in all branches of commercial art, so that graduate of the School may be efficiently prepared to accept the varied opportunities open to trained men and women. The system of individual instruction gives the student every encouragement and constant help.The progress and nature of his work depend upon his personal ability and initiative
